6:19 pm
by and early warnings led to empty streets during rush hour. >> let's check in with our meteorologist, jeff ra -- ranieri. >> its been with us for over a week and continuing to produce rainfall to the north. eventually, we do think we'll get a slight chance for action. we'll take a look outside the sky camera network. temperatures in the 50s through san francisco and the north bay and a slight chance of showers in those locations, otherwise remains over cast with mid 50s. let's take you into that forecast for tomorrow. thursday is almost here. i can feel it. all right. let's get a look. what you'll find here as we do expect sun to build into the forecast for the south bay and east bay. likely cloudy here throughout san francisco and the north bay. that will be the best possibility of where we have showers in the forecast. so let's go ahead and get a look at that rain timeline. again, the way this storm is
6:20 pm
moving in, it will break up before it gets close to us. so tonight throughout thursday, it's mainly about the north bay to see that possibility of showers. santa rosa will have the greatest chance but you can see as we head throughout the early hours, it will go on and off between periods of showers and clouds and the best guess is by 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 in the morning, drizzle with clouds and temperatures in the upper 40s to near 50. that basically means in the south bay, we have little to no chance of picking up ain any kind of rainfall at this point from this storm system. but we all have a better chance of getting rainfall here in the bay area as we head throughout this upcoming weekend, the storm lines to the north and it looks like by the overnight hours, 3:00, 4:00 and 5:00 on sunday morning we'll start to see showers move in across the bay. we'll have details how much some of this green could mean on the radar coming up later on, you guys. >> thank you, jeff. up next, the newest travel perk for a select group of tech

6:29 pm
will face a new murder charge tomorrow for that special grand jury indictment. >> reporter: that's right, jessica. the divers themselves told me a week ago today and the sheriffs' spokesmen told me my sources were wrong, they were training. it turned out my sources were correct as the case against torrez was put on the fast track. he's walked into court for almost two years charged with killing 15-year-old sierra lamar but never entering a plea in that time. >> it's languished for awhile. i'm not happy but i hope it will speed it up. >> reporter: talking about the grand jury indictment of torrez which will eliminate a lengthy preliminary hearing. instead the prosecutor will ask the judge to set a trial date. >> the grand jury said there is enough evidence to take this case to a trial. that does not mean this case can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, and that's the key at a
6:30 pm
jury trial. >> reporter: legal analyst stephen clark says prosecutors need to find sierra lamar's body to seal the case. our cameras caught divers looking for evidence last week at hidden farm lake in morgan hills. the sheriff's office said they were not looking for evidence but rather training. tonight, an admission from the sheriff. >> any time someone calls, we will followup on it. so we were out there. we were acting on a tip, and it was also really, really great training for the dive team. >> reporter: divers were using this new state of the art sonar that can detect a body. they said torrez used to fish at hidden farm lake which is a half mile from his mother's home but sheriffs said divers found nothing that day and will continue their search across the country. >> we continually look for sierra. we will react again to public information about where we should search. we would like to find sierra.

6:34 pm
ceo and cfo. we filed a record's request asking to see invoices and checks for a list of expenses from 2011. while sam tran said it spent $50,000 in public funds and countless staff hours on our request, the district could not provide invoices or checks for expenses ramirez listed as fake or inflated and included a $118,000 expense for maze and associates, that's the aud kiting firm contracted to catch these mistakes. >> they did do additional testing on questions raised. >> reporter: in november, the cfo told board members not to worry. >> they verbally reported that everything is fine. >> reporter: sam tran insist audits have come back clean but after the first report, auditors took a second look where we found errors. this time, they did to. in a sample maze found more than a million dollars in expenses
6:35 pm
inflated by staff but did not deem the amount large enough to address. forensic auditor eugene has more than 30 years of accounting experience, 25 in government accounting. he reviewed sam tran's resports and responses. are those proper accounting procedures? >> if that is occurring, i would question whether it is proper. >> reporter: in a statement sam trans says the actions are appropriate and consistent with past practice and blamed inflated expenses on ramirez, calling it actionen taken unilaterally by an employee. >> a unilateral action shouldn't be possible in a big organization like this. >> i would be happy to have my chief financial officer go on air and on camera and explain if there was a mistake. >> reporter: when he asked the cfo to explain, the district said it would have no further comment. we asked you to sit down and explain how you're handling public dollars, will you sit down with us?
6:36 pm
meanwhile, sam trans silence speaks volumes he says. >> if these numbers are going out to the public and they cannot stand by them, there is something wrong. >> reporter: many questions remain about where this money went. the san mateo county launched a report in september. that's still on going. we posted a detailed break down of the expenses showing what sam trans reported compared to what the district provided evidence for. vicky nguyen, nbc bay area news. >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit call 888-996-tips. coming up, get your resume out. we'll let you know where hundreds of new jobs are opening up in the bay area. and a sink hole takes out some rare american cars. the scene that had some employees in tears. good evening. i'm chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. we're tracking rainfall on the radar now.

6:48 pm
and you can see the low-level moisture present on the camera. that's a sign that we will at least have that fog tonight at the coastline and north bay and areas of drizzle. as far as getting measurable rainfall down here throughout the next 24 hours, tough. the storm doors kind of cracked open at this point as we've been mentioning. so as we get a look, we'll see the first one arrive over the next 24 hours and it really is going to keep the bulk of the moisture way off to the north. so at this point, as that cold front gets close, it will break apart, we think the best chance of getting activity will be throughout the north bay possibly down to san francisco, again, for tonight and also into thursday. temperatures will also be cooling off into the row 60s. our better chance of rainfall to come our way will be this weekend. the cold front will sweep across stronger and we'll look at rainfall amounts from 1/10th to 3500ths. who will get the most? we'll get you covered on that.
6:49 pm
as we flip to the next element, the estimated forecast will show the north bay will have the most, from a quarter of an inch to possibly around .34 and .10 toward san jose. not a large storm, doesn't compare to anything last weekend, but it's something. micro climate forecast, wide-ranging. we will have sunshine by the afternoon inson s san jose. subtropical moisture, heat. likely warmest in morgan hill. s also a mix of micro climate weather here for the north bay, east bay and trivalley. what you will find is the best chance of showers in napa and santa rosa and staying cloudy and walnut creek mostly sunny and 68 and please season ton 68.
